Spring has (sort of) sprung here in New Jersey and thankfully that spirit was reflected in this month’s ipsy glam bag! From the whimsical floral pattern to the lightweight products inside, this bag will definitely get you ready for warmer weather ahead!
Be a Bombshell Cosmetics: Baked Bronzer “Heat Wave”
This is probably the sheerest bronzer I’ve ever seen. Even with water it’s extremely light and dry. This is great for my oily, natural girls looking for subtle color that barely needs blending. For girls looking to contour, stick with something else like Too Faced: Chocolate Soleil.
Ofra Cosmetics: Eyeliner “Green Go”
I was hesitant about receiving a colored liner but this green is an olive with gold undertones. It will be super flattering on all my brown-eyed mavens as well as hazels. The consistency is not super creamy but also not overly dry. It should be a nice product for summer because it won’t melt away. Stay tuned for a day and night look perfect for festivals in the works with this product!
ModelCo: Lip Lacquer “Socialite”
This super long-wearing lipstick is super pigmented and the hugh I received is a nice orange-based red for olive complexions with a summer tan. My only criticism is the same I have for all of ModelCo’s products: they are gel based. I prefer cream-based products for my combination skin because it doesn’t stick to dry patches BUT gels are nice for summer as they give a more natural look that fades beautifully. This is a true stay-put lacquer and will be an asset for otherwise neutral summer night looks. (Think gold sandals and a white lace dress with metallic eyes.)
Evologie: Intensive Blemish Serum
I truly despise ipsy in the moment I unpacked this product because as much as I am generally a happy ipster, I have sensitive skin and can use very few products on my face so this one will sadly have to be re-gifted. No reviews here.
IT Cosmetics: Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer “Light”
So I have been DYING to try this stuff! My mom swears by IT Cosmetics for the anti-aging properties used in their products and though pricey, they certainly have a cult following. That being said, I had high hopes for this product and I wasn’t disappointed. It definitely covered any darkness under my eyes and anywhere else on my face for that matter. But alas, this product is not for me. I wish it was designed for the pretty twenty-somethings shown on the infomercials but this product really is designed for an older demographic. The product felt like a thick plaster on my face and is clearly more useful for severe cases that have developed over time. This is beyond full-coverage and I would only use it for a special occasion with a full contour and falsies.
Overall, definitely a bag I can usher in spring with!
